It usually starts at home (or wherever the antenna is placed). Before the Super Bowl, Fox 26 engineers were making sure they were operating at 100%. Didn't need any issues on the most watched event...

I'll do my research when I get to that point. Technology now may change in a year - or less! 8K is supposed to come out in a few years. Japan will have 8K by 2020 or so.

If I were in your shoes, I'd be very happy to get what I get and call it a day. Even relatively close to the towers, I get some sort of interference. I have no idea what it's from, but, like yours,...

Sadly, it might by time to replace the unit. Fixing it might cost as much or more than replacing it. I've seen 4K TVs (52" and larger) that are sub-$1000 now. Once my 5271f goes, I won't think of...

Wow! I'm exactly 6.48 miles away from the transmitter, and somehow I can't receive it. I do have my antenna in my attic, and my attic has a radiant barrier. I'll have to move my antenna around and...

I'm 6 miles from the towers in Pearland, and RF channel 46 doesn't show up on my list. They must be low power.

Agreed. This TV is not worth the repair bill. However, if Samsung will fix the capacitor problem for free out of warranty, like they did for mine and many others, then it is worth it. My 2007 model...

Interesting. Movies! is on the sub-channel of the Fox O&O in Austin and Memphis. I would have expected it to be added to 26.2 instead. That's good to know that it is going on 20.2 instead.
